Workshop: Getting lost in the city by Carla Kogelman
The black and white portraits of Carla Kogelman (b. 1961) are a representation of everyday life. The recognizable and idiosyncratic world of children fascinates her. For her series Ich Bin Waldviertel she twice won first prize at World Press Photo. The jury said of her work: "With Carla we joyfully return to a world where we are never bored and rediscover the freshness and spontaneity of youth. She rises to the challenge with a poetic balance that avoids voyeurism or sentimentality."
Before turning to photography, Carla Kogelman worked in theater. She currently lives in the city of Amersfoort and loves to get lost in the city, intuitively looking for atmosphere, light and composition. But also always looking for people; the extras in her story. This workshop will first visit the exhibition on Caspar van Wittel at Kunsthal KAdE. Van Wittel captured the urban environment in his paintings, but also always depicted the street life that showed itself in that urban environment. This is particularly characteristic of Kogelman's work, an eye for the people. After visiting the exhibition, Kogelman will explain her own work, after which the participants will join her on a tour of the city in search of beautiful places.
